Ripil is Social Media for Good. If you want to do good, see good happening around you and the world, Ripil is the place. Our platform was built with every tool possible to keep people engaged and inspired to do and spread good around the World. A newsfeed of all that is happening around the user, ‘Deeds nearby’ to connect you with those in your community doing good, a ‘follow’ function to help grow your impact on the world. Create a public group for anyone across the globe or a private group just for your company or school. A Kindness Leaderboard will show you the kindest users, kindest groups and kindest cities in the world and a “Deed gauge” will give you up to the minute stats of how many deeds have happened today and throughout the year. A direct messaging feature will allow you to speak with people you have connected with inside of Ripil and the “Good news” section brings the user in contact with every piece of good news published, each day, throughout the world.
